One of the most common reasons cited for granting administrative privileges to notebook users on Windows is the need to install drivers for new hardware when IT support isn’t available. Happily, Windows 7 has improved driver handling and it’s likely that when a new device is connected, it will either be supported out-of-the-box, i.e. a driver for the device is included with Windows 7, or a driver will be automatically downloaded from Windows Update and pre-staged into the driver store (c:windowssystem32driverstore) so it can be installed by a standard user.
